Electrosoft today announced that the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has awarded the company a spot on its Cybersecurity and Privacy Support Services (CAPSS) IDIQ. The five-year, $125 million multiple-award IDIQ contract is for cybersecurity and privacy technical expertise to support the development of standards, guidelines, and research documents. The award extends a longstanding partnership between NIST and Electrosoft of more than 20 years.

“NIST is the country’s leading resource for cybersecurity standards and best practices, helping federal government and industry to better understand, manage, and reduce their risks,” said Dr.Sarbari Gupta, Electrosoft CEO. “We are pleased to be continuing our NIST partnership to provide cybersecurity thought leadership in the CAPSS IDIQ and subsequent task orders.”

Services will help ensure that the NIST cybersecurity role can be met to provide standards, technology, tools, and practices to protect our nation's information and information systems. The company may also provide operational cybersecurity services and support services to engage stakeholders.
